Private Swim Lessons in Los Angeles , CA

It’s always a Sunsational time to learn to swim in Southern California! When you sign up for private swim lessons with our Los Angeles-area swim instructors, you can rest assured that your child will make rapid progress with the essential safety skills needed in and around the water. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee focuses on your swimmer’s ability to turn around and get to the wall unassisted if they fall into the pool: if your child can’t demonstrate that “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the twelfth lesson, we’ll give you up to four additional classes for free!

Our Los Angeles swim lessons are perfect for learners of all ages—infants, toddlers, older children, and adults!—to improve their swimming ability in a matter of weeks. After several one-on-one lessons, your swimmer will show increased confidence, safety, and skills in the water, whether in your own backyard pool or at a community pool in the Los Angeles-area.

When your child is ready to race with the Los Angeles Swim Club or one of the many other local teams, we’ll match them with an instructor with current or prior coaching experience, to improve their racing form and technique and become a better competitor. We also offer private swim lessons for athletes wanting to train for the Los Angeles Triathlon or for a military swim test; we’ve got a Sunsational instructor to help you with all of your swimming needs!

Catching some waves at Surfrider Beach in Malibu? Or just relaxing in your own pool? From beaches to backyards, gaining the skills to enjoy the water more safely is a must for everyone living in the Golden State. Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swim skills to you!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Los Angeles

Water Safety Focus

We emphasize water safety skills at Sunsational Swim School. Why? Tragically, the majority of drownings in the Los Angeles area that involve young children happen in private pools. Learning how to recover from an accidental fall into the water by finding the wall, turning around, and swimming to the side of the pool is the “Sunsational Swim Sequence” in our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee: if, after twelve lessons, your child (3 and older) has not mastered those steps, we give you up to four additional classes for free!

Convenient Scheduling

You may have to squeeze into your swimsuit, but you don’t have to squeeze our lessons into your calendar! If your Tuesdays and Thursdays are just too hectic, you can schedule lessons for a lazy Saturday morning or a peaceful Friday afternoon. Your Sunsational swimming class fits your schedule, not the other way around.

Individualized Lesson Plans

Our experienced teachers make lesson plans guided by each swimmer’s needs and strengths, because every student learns to swim differently. Sunsational’s classes utilize gentle, encouraging techniques so that kids and adults can conquer fears and learn to swim more quickly.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

You save time and money when you can choose the location that works best for your family. Sunsational Swim Instructors teach lessons at the Los Angeles-area pool you choose—in your neighborhood or in your backyard!

We absolutely LOVED Stacey!! She was so patient with both of our 19month old and our 4.5 year old! Our 4 year old just adored her and looked forward to swim lessons each week. She commanded his attention and really made him listen. He swims like a pro now. He is water safe, which was reassuring to hear from Stacey. And he truly enjoys the pool and swimming!! She taught him a lot of neat tricks for diving and swimming on his back. She did quite a lot with our littlest child as well!! She was able to get him onto his back each lesson and dipped him under water. I developed a lot more confidence with him in the water through watching Stacey with him.
Our instructor, Cheyenne, was always on time, enthusiastic, energetic, focused, and dedicated to the kids. She worked really hard and encouraged each child to do their best. She had infinite patience and overall made a huge impact on the kids, who were able to learn new strokes in no time.
It's a full service with great flexibility! I had my lessons with Jakub, who is incredibly encouraging and helpful. He is very positive and also very good at meeting the student at their level. I was struggling with my breathing and feeling comfortable in the water. He gave me great exercises that really focused on just my breathing and as a result, it as helped me reduce my anxiety and increase my confidence in my swimming abilities. Highly recommend Sunsational Swim School!
I had a great experience with sunsational for my 6 year old son. His instructor Jeremy was able to take my son from being afraid of the water to doing the front crawl, back stroke, and breast stoke in seven sessions. My son has not mastered these as yet and still need some more sesssions to perfect the strokes, but it was amazing to see what Jeremy was able to do on seven sessions.

Great experience with Jeremy. Exceptional instructor.
I found booking lessons with Sunsational Swim School really easy. I was assigned Tiffani as an instructor and could not have had a better experience. I am an adult who did not learn how to swim as a child. I had also had some bad experiences in the water and only grew more scared of the water as I got older. My husband tried teaching me how to swim and I also attended swim lessons for adult learners in the past. However, I was unable to learn until Tiffani came along. Tiffani pushed me out of my comfort zone but was so gentle and patient with me. After 12 lessons, I am happy to report that I can swim (even in the deep end) and am completely water safe! Tiffani changed my relationship with water and I am now happy to get in the water. In fact, my husband and I are planning a snorkeling trip in the near future which would have been impossible to consider before registering for swim lessons with Sunsational Swim School.
Fantastic Swim School. I've enjoyed my lessons with Amy so much. She is so skilled and personable and for this beginner adult swimmer has actually helped me ENJOY being in the water and getting comfortable in my ability. The sign-up process is super easy but most importantly, Amy is an incredible teacher.
Stephanie has been very professional, very communicative and dependable. My kids really like her and listen to her.
A great wonderful option for private lessons, right in your back yard. We love our instructors Ashley and Cheyenne. One is for our daughter, the other is for our son. Great instruction and wonderful personalities.
Our swim instructor Stephanie from Sunsational is a great swim instructor. She was very patient with our son and all of his fears. She was able to give him the gentle push he needed to learn how to swim. We were amazed to see our son swimming after just 4 weeks of lessons. It has been a struggle for us for 6 years and now we finally have a confident little swimmer!
Shannon is very patient and encouraging with my grandson. He looses interest after 15 minutes but she makes it fun and challenges him with fun activities that engage him. It's certainly not easy with an energetic 5 year old that just wants to play. This is only the second lesson but she teaching good skills
